TMS have completed the first stage of the works on Toft Pier this week. The Piles have been installed encapsulating the existing old pier, After this section is filled with stone, the crane will move further out to start piling the pier extension. The photos below show us closing off this stage with the anchor wall.
TMS were instructed by Balfour Beatty to complete emergency works last week on St Blazey Railway Embankment.
Due to the recent bad weather the river bank was being washed out which had caused the adjacent railway line to be closed as a precautionary measure.
Working in a mature fashion in direct collaboration with Balfour Beatty, TMS employed continuous working to perform these essential repairs as quickly as possible. Within 24 hours a piling rig was mobilised to site and within a further 72 hours approximately 70 tonnes of tied sheet piles were installed to level. Balfour Beatty then completed the track reinstatement works and the railway was re-opened.
